I had a number of great runs here on some snow days, but good runs on no snow days were possible too with excellent grooming. Wonderful views on chairlift ride to Blue Sky Basin.

Such a beautiful area & accessible for intermediate skiers vs the expert only Back Bowls. We can ski as a family here, a much better choice for our multi-generational family

Amazing trees! If you want to do the Gates it will be awesome! Do them only with someone who has done them before....

There is nothing like a powder day back in Blue Sky Basin at Vail. Catch some first tracks by getting on the lift right as they open and heading straight back to the Blue Sky Express lift.

The Cloud 9 trail has some great glade opportunities... take the Skyline Express chair to Belle's Camp, and follow the signs for the Cloud 9 trail. A real gem at Vail...

It's easy to get ahead of the crowd on a powder day over at Blue Sky. Try steep and deep or lovers leap

It takes awhile to get over to Blue Sky Basin from Lions Head but it is worth it. We were there on a Post Card Blue day and the view was amazing. Had lunch that a friend grilled out side and we enjoyed inside by the fire. That was wonderful. I like the runs, they were groomed.. no powder that... More
